Every watercolor I work on is an exercise in capturing the flickering light that is experienced in nature. I try to combine that light with colorful elements that flash before me while I move through an area. I love spending time in the mountains in the summer because I can get outside and hike around to experience these elements easily.
Fantasy Mountain Garden
Here are some photo notes I took yesterday on a walk.
Pursuing a new direction is always tough. Stepping out of the comfort zone and finding the time to work on new ideas is also a challenge. I managed to do some works this winter that I had been thinking about for while. I am not sure where it will take me.
Making Progress with Watercolors
This is my first session on my 2nd painting of Trish’s Cutting Garden. The previous painting I stuck with a little too long. There is a lot of detail but it is a little overworked. This time I am trying for a looser approach. The progressive photos will help. The format is different 10″h x 8″w. This time no pencil marks. I am using the Ampersand clay board designed for watercolor. The surface really grabs the color. There will be no pushing, or removing color from this surface.
